Crystals have been valued throughout history for their properties as well as their appearance. Crystallography measures the atomic arrangement of crystal. The following is a visual exploration of the 32 crystallographic point groups system to evaluate if art based on exact science can participate in the larger debate on symmetry and the perception of beauty.

Topics: mineral, crystal, symmetry, geometry, mathematics and art, art

Cinemagraph #1. Snowflake paradigm Snowflakes are at once geometrically simple and incredibly intricately simple and incredibly intricate. 17th Century mathematician and astronomer J. Kepler asked the question "Why do snowflakes have six corners?” It wouldn’t be answered until the development of X-ray crystallography in the twentieth century. Ice grows hexagonal and in certain regimes triangular and cubic ice crystals. These are the only three geometric shapes that can fill a surface...

Cinemagraph #4 Stochastic art The spheres were distributed randomly on a 15×15 square grid. The Cinemagraph technique animates some of them at random interval.To add to the dynamic of the image, I inserted a classic example of random after-effect illusion. When your eye focuses on a white sphere and/or move from one to the other, your peripheral vision may see for a short time the ghost of a sphere appearing inside some of the empty squares.

This Pachinko-like cinemagraph is an actual visualization of a Hilbert curve done in the program ContextFree Art. In 1890, Peano discovered a continuous curve that passes through every point of the unit square. A year later, David Hilbert published a more complex variation of Peano’s construction. He included in his demonstration a picture to help visualize the construction.

Topics: Cinemagraph, mathematics and art, science and art, Hilbert, Hilbert curve, ContextFree art, Peano,...

Cinemagraph #2. Hyperboloid Hyperboloid Recursive journey into the heart of a hyperbola. The original design contains 1,656.027 shapes. Including the double rotation effect in the cinemagraph, the moving image may be composed of substantially more shapes, some visible, some hidden, some retained in the retina for a second or two according to the famous white dot/black dot neural after effect.

The Julia set, named after the French mathematician Gaston Julia, consists of values such that an arbitrarily small perturbation can cause drastic changes in the sequence of iterated function values. The image is created by mapping each pixel to a rectangular region of the complex plane and by colouring the point by how fast it diverges to infinity. Topèng is one of Bali's oldest dance-drama. The term "Pajegan" means "one who performs all function". Topeng Pajegan is based...

Mathematics-inspired visualization. The Boy’s Surface is a family of surfaces. Werner Boy, in his dissertation under Hilbert, constructed an immersion of the projective plane. Boy’s Surface has besides its self-intersection curves only one more serious singularity, namely a triple point (H. Karcher).
